Is it just us or is Kate Middleton stepping it up in the fashion department?

After heading out in a daring slit-to-there Roland Mouret dress on Wednesday, the Duchess is at it again, appearing in a teal Jenny Packham gown at Our Greatest Team Rises, a black tie gala that marks the final countdown to the London 2012 Games, the Daily Mail is reporting. Hopefully this bold dress marks a departure into more colorful territory for the Duchess, who has been sticking to a more neutral palette recently. Also a departure? K.Midd has pinned up her signature long locks--all the better to show off the dress's sheer lace back (below).

We're glad Middleton seems to be moving out of her comfort zone a bit. The updo, too, is a welcome change (we love the braid!). What do you think of Kate's look?
